Blogs are like Trains

I never thought I'd be posting a blog post similar to this one because I try to make and take each blog post as their own and my blog itself seems to fall under no category but I feel I need to write this for myself. For my own piece of mind.

I started this blog over two years ago, in fact, almost three years and I guess time really does fly when you're having fun. Those two years have flown by so quickly and I've only really been writing for an audience, thanks to some of my social media platforms, for a year and, my oh my, has this little space grown. I've received comments on most of the posts I've published since and there are people who actively choose to come back and say hello every time I post (they're some of my favourite people ever). I've discovered more blogs that I ever imagined the Internet could hold and I've loved every single one of them. You can't help but compare yourself but, luckily, I don't feel I have to compete to be better than them. However there's somethings about my blog which I want to change.

Each blog is a train, and every one of them travels at a different speed and has a different destination that it will get to. Each station along the way is another milestone and we will all reach them at different times, so to avoid a collision. I'm nearly at 1000 followers on Instagram! That's another station for me. However my blog/train has been travelling steady over the past few years. Meeting each station at the same speed and picking up a few passengers along the way (that's you, my wonderful and loving audience) however I've been cooking and serving the same old food on every journey and I want to change it up a bit get a new menu. The food is my posts. Each one feels like another review that I could have written two years ago and I want to change it up. Produce new content, although I'm not quite sure what it is/will be yet.

I could just add some herbs to the pizza or sauce to the pasta, at the moment I'm not too sure and thinking about it, it might not seem any different to you when my next posts comes up. However, for me, I feel refreshed from my holiday and want to put so much more effort into my blog and time into my YouTube (which you will find linked at the end of this post, along with all my other social media) so I'm writing this blog so it almost acts as one of those white 'theme dividers' on Instagram, so that I have a clean slate for me to start the new school year on! See you soon!

Passion #ThursdayThoughts

Hello lovely people,
I hope you're having a wonderful day and have spent moments doing something you really enjoy.
As you're reading this I am helping at my Sixth Form open evening and last Thursday I was doing the exact same, except that it was for the entire school. Whilst wondering the Chemistry department I came across a year 7 boy, short in height, friendly and, more than ever, passionate about what he was doing in that moment. 
He asked me: 'can I show you how to do this experiment?' and although, I've done the test for hydrogen many times over the course of my school career, I said yes because I could see the excitement in his eyes to talk me through what he was doing. As he added the Magnesium to the Hydrochloric acid I placed my thumb over the test tube and he lit a wooden splint in the bunsen burner. He swiftly brought the splint over and got me to move my hand a squeaky pop sound could be heard, indicating that hydrogen was present. Hearing the pop his …

A Day In My Life | Collaboration

I'm lucky, each day that goes by something totally different so when writing a day in my life post it's a little tricky to write about something which isn't consistent.

I'll leave all her links below so make sure to have a look and a read.
